.OUTLOOK (DAYS 3-5)...DRY ATMOSPHERIC CONDITIONS AND GENERALLY
LIGHT WIND ARE EXPECTED WEDNESDAY. A FRONTAL BOUNDARY WILL ENTER
THE REGION FRIDAY AND CONTRIBUTE TO ISOLATED SHOWERS. EXPECT LOW
TEMPERATURES MAINLY IN THE MID 50S. HIGHS IN THE MID 60S WEDNESDAY
AND THURSDAY...YET NEAR 60 FRIDAY.

* A LOW RISK OF RIP CURRENTS MEANS THAT ANY RIP CURRENTS THAT DO
  FORM ARE LIKELY TO BE WEAK BUT STILL MAY POSE A DANGER TO POOR
  SWIMMERS. RESEARCH HAS SHOWN RIP CURRENTS ARE TYPICALLY MORE
  FREQUENT IN THE VICINITY OF JETTIES...INLETS...AND PIERS AND
  THESE CAN BE QUITE STRONG ON DAYS WHERE THE OVERALL RIP CURRENT
  THREAT IS LOW...ESPECIALLY IF STRONG SOUTHERLY OR NORTHEASTERLY
  WINDS EXIST.

* WAVE HEIGHT AND PERIOD FORECASTS ARE REPRESENTATIVE OF DEEP OCEAN
  WAVES OVER THE OFFSHORE WATERS...NOT SURF CONDITIONS.
